    I really like this kid, he could turn out to be one of the best draft choices we ever made.

    Woah...hold on their pal.

    Hakeem
    Yao
    Ralph

    If Brooks becomes a contributor at number 26 it will be a very good pick.

    True, very true, any reason all those guys are centers? Who knows, he may bust, but from what I see I really like the kid. Hopefully he doesn't turn into to Sam Cassell and we trade him for an outdated superstar.

    He didn't say Brooks would become one of the best PLAYERS we ever drafted; he said he could turn out to be one of the best draft choices we ever made. Big difference. Dream, Yao and Ralph were all no-brainers taken in the first slot.

    Somehow, I don't feel at all threatened by this possibility. After all, the prediction to which you are referring was made after ONE summer league game. As Han Solo once said: "Good against droids is one thing; Good against the living is something else". I'll need to see him really doing something against the big boys (and at his size, they are ALL big) before I start placing him in the same league as Hakeem, Drexler, Rudy T and the other Rockets' legends.
